If you can't get enough of games like Touch Detective, Hotel Dusk: Room 215, and some other franchise concerned with getting to the bottom of mysteries, and your Tivo is packed with the 32 flavors of Law and Order and CSI, then Unsolved Crimes may just be the thing you've been waiting for. The recently-announced DS game, set in New York in the 1970s, gives DS owners a chance to put on their detective shoes as a rookie in the city's homicide division.
Unsolved Crimes sounds like a more serious take than some of the handheld's detective games, but the setup is certainly familiar. The title will offer nine separate cases, and several minigames, as well as touchscreen support for navigating the 3D crime scenes. We're still searching for a release date; for now, our only clue is later this year.

Will it allow text to be displayed faster than a third grade reading level? As a speed reader, Hotel Dusk was mental suicide, and no matter how caught up in the story I was, I couldn't bear to wait between messages for hours more. And let's not comment on Touch Detective's 20 second "wake up, get out of bed, turn around, straighten out bed, now you can load your game".
Anyway, greatly looking forward to more stories and games in this genre.
